The SanDisk Clip Sport loads and plays FLAC files, but it doesn't recognize any FLAC tags.  All songs display as Unknown Album and Unknown Artist.

What about playlists? – I'm asking because the Sport doesn't accept m3u playlists («not supported»), it even refuses to complete database refreshing (with m3u playlists on the external card).

I think I found the reason: Playlists only work when accessed via «Music» menu, but they don't work via «Folder» menu. Strange that they're accessible at all in the latter case.

Re: SanDisk Clip Sport Supported file types

I am getting a message when I try to download an audiobook from Overdrive that Sport Clip does not support the WMA Audiobook file type.  Am I doing something wrong, or will the Clip Sport really not allow downloads from Overdrive?

WMA with DRM isn't supported, so you won't be able to use them.

The Sport model is an MSC-only device. MTP mode is required for the use of DRM-encrypted content like Rhapsody or books 'loaned' from your library using the Overdrive software. So as saratoga mentioned, you cannot use the Sport for this type of content. Better to return it and get a Clip+ or Zip (both full-featured players) if this is important to you.

Re: SanDisk Clip Sport Supported file types

Just bought a SanDisk Clip Sport and tried to download WMA files ... and got message that WMA is not supported.

How can this be??? I have had several Sansa MP3 players and they have all always played WMA files.

HELP!

Re: SanDisk Clip Sport Supported file types

are the files DRM protected? if so the sport does not support DRM protected files. If they are not DRM protected post a link to one of the files and we can test it to see if we can figure out what is going on.

Re: SanDisk Clip Sport Supported file types

I just wanted to add that I listen to audiobooks from OverDrive all the time on my Sport.  I don't download them as  WMA files though.  I use the other option (mp3 audiobook).  Never had a problem.  I just have to be sure the shuffle function is turned off so they play in order (and also that the segments are put on the Sport in order!)
